yea, im gunna test the IAC today, mine is showing somewhat similer symtoms that yours had, dude at the autozone by me, he knows his stuff, he gave me the low down, told me what to do, if it is, i will let everyone know, but thanks for the info.
Engine coolant temp gauge is good. I have a stage 2 chip and an 85 degree thermostat, It runs about 1/3 of the way between 40 and 70. What is the ideal temp? Can I take the clutch fan off to make it run hotter?
heya, guess what, it was my IAC, went and bought a new one today, and put it on, wow, what a differnce in warm up, acctually works right now, i was so happy, im glad autozone had one, the old one was carboned up really bad and stuck in one position. yea im probly gunna reattach the heat riser hose.
Don't want your truck to run 'hotter' if you have a stage2 chip. It is programmed to work with the 185 thermostat. If you want to run the 190 thermostat then you will probably need the stage1 chip, which is programmed to run with the stock thermostat. Is your temp gauge accurate? Might want to check it. If you want to run it hotter and pick up a bit of power, replace the fan clutch assembly with an electric fan set up with an adjustable temp switch. That should allow you to run the 180 that you are seeking.
